We are holdingย  a minutes silence before the start of the men’s race at Heaton Park, in memory of Richard (Ricky) Wilde 13/10/45 – 24/9/19. Apart from being a superb runner, Richard was a member of Manchester Harriers for 53 years and was an integral part of the Club hosting cross country matches at Heaton Park for decades. He was instrumental in setting the course for the League and helped mark it and marshal it every season until ill health forced him to stop.
